The art on the box (and the name) might give it away, but the Black Widow are our go-to glove for tattoo artists. Latex-free and exam grade, these gloves are safe for use on customers and patients with latex allergies or sensitivities. The black color helps keep tattoo customers calm by reducing the visibility of ink and blood. At 5 mils the Black Widow is the thickest and most durable medical nitrile glove that we offer. Because of the color and durability, and the fact that sizing goes up to a 2X the Black Widow are also the ideal glove for law enforcement who might also need to provide first aid or emergency care. Since they are exam grade they offer the additional protection against pathogens, bacteria and viruses needed for hospitals, clinics, laboratories, nursing homes and home care. Especially if color-coding gloves is needed.
The Black Widow aren't limited to just medical tasks, but are also a great glove for food prep (especially dealing with fatty meats and sharp shellfish), cooking and heavy-duty cleaning. We also have a lot of customers who purchase the Black Widow for mechanical work - they are great for keeping your hands safe from fuel oil, gasoline, diesel and brake fluid.
In the last paragraph we usually try to include a bit about what the glove shouldn't be used for, but the Black Widow are really an excellent all-around glove. If you're not sure exactly what you need, there's a good chance the Black Widow will be great for you. If you're using a lot of acetone and don't have any sensitivities to latex that might be a better option for you, but nitrile holds up really well to most other chemicals (check for yourself in our chemical resistance chart).
